$86 million a day to the federal government. that's a lot of revenue that could help with deficit, deficit reduction and our debt structure. the third piece of that is we could become more energy secure as a nation. today we're less reliant on outside sources. new technologies have allowed us to produce all the energy we'll need right here at home. if we create policies to allow us to use americans to create american energy, it'll benefit us all. those are the things that could be done immediately. >> so how come the administration isn't doing it, if it's that obvious these jobs can be created soon? >> well, it's unfortunate because i think their limitations on the industry is driven by, in my view, extreme ideology. it's driven by an irresponsible view that we can switch from one energy form to the other overnight. somehow, we can take the 62% of our energy in the u.s., which happens to be oil and natural gas, and just flip a switch and turn that to wind mills or solar panels. all energy forms are important to us, but the reality is it took us 100 years in the united states to ge

is so weak and republicans are talking about trying to, you know, bring the government deficit down, trying to straighten out the economy in the long run. so i don't see final demand so things might be better four years from now and therefore the president will look very good in hindsight, but it's going to be a hell of a ride getting there. >> you say might look better four years from now. >> i don't know. are they going to do a good job? it's hard to do a good job. i would argue obama did a good job because the situation was so awful where he started out. looking with hindsight you could have done better than you did. >> what do you think has to happen most? you worry about some of the austerity but you think we need to flush the system and deal with bitter medicine? >> well, one thing, the really good things about the united states, you got to be much more positive about this country than europe or japan. one, because we've got more people here, we're growing, we have babies, we have growing population so the housing problem will disappear. all of the houses are going to get used

way you could do that is with large budget deficit and for better or worse, we're not seeing big enough deficits because everyone in washington's got this deficit hysteria, even though we're paying 1.6% interest on ten-year bonds. >> well, how about some clarity? how come ceo after ceo and manager after manager come on this program and tell me the same thing? i'm not going to move. i'm not going to put money into the economy. i'm not going to hire new workers because i have no idea what my tax rates are going to be. >> they want tax cuts. >> no, i think -- >> if you look at their investment -- >> i think they want clarity. >> i look at the data. if you look at investment equipment and softwares, i'm leaving out structures for exactly the reason your previous segment said. there's a huge vacancy in most categories in unresidential real estate because of the prior building boom. if you look at equipment and software investments and share of gdp, we're almost back to the prerecession level. so the fact is generally they actually have been investing in spite of what they're telling y

the deficit among likely voters for obama from five points to three points. and in florida, he's closed from five down to one which is tied given the margin of error in our poll. in virginia, he has closed the gap from five to two. if you look at the state of ohio, a must-win state for mitt romney, mathematically possible for him to get to it without it but his strategists think he needs it. he needs to make progress there. but the fact that some of the national polls are coming back a little bit, some of the swing state polls are tightening, is a bit of an earn couragement for romney that he still has an opportunity for deficit with three or four points to change the dynamic in some way. he's got to hope that obama is not on his best game. you could have a scenario that like what happened in 2000 where george w. bush moved significantly without gore and ultimately became president. >> it's interesting that the poll also shows, as you mention, this 12% of swingable votes in the middle that he could potentially get a hold of. also ensuring that the big money continues to back him moving forwa

for next year, the 2013 details, the deficits will be difficult to reach. he also suggested that the growth forecast for next year was very optimistic. he suggested minus 1.5%, which is much more in line with what analysts are saying. so he has it on all fronts. but the social aspect here, it's a week since we had the protests. i'm hering that there will be protests again this we could and actually while he was speaking, the people there let it known how they feel. >> you have the chance to ask your question later, please.

the republican party has gotten lost. we cannot afford any tax cuts. we have to deal with our deficit. that will mean spending cuts for everybody. dagen: is it a mistake to run on this at all? how can you focus been on, because the issue is growth and jobs. how do you run and talk about that without linking tax policy to it somehow? the opposite would be saying we will get rid of these deductions. some people taxes will go up. that will not win you to white house, will it? >> both parties have been -- we cannot afford to give anybody anything anymore. we are broke. we are running a trillion dollars deficit. once we start paying a real normal interest rate on that 20 trillion, it will send the budget even deeper. dagen: all of what you are saying makes perfect sense. i have argued for years that the american people will not vote to pick that until they feel it is home. runaway inflation like the 1970s and skyhigh interest rates like people saw 30 some odd years ago. that is not the case today. if it was laid out just like that, do you think they would vote based on that? >> i think the

. we wanted a menu of thoughtful choices to reduce our deficit and avoid sequestration. >> go through it for us. because, you know, i guess if it were that easy, it would have been a lot simpler getting to the point where we're at. can you talk to us specifics about what you think should be cut? >> sure. that's what we wanted to do in this report. it's more than $100 billion in agriculture, more than $100 billion in energy, and as i said, in agriculture, commodity crop payments, reforming crop insurance. in energy, we'd like to eliminate the entire tight. 17 loan guarantee program which includes the loan guarantee, you know, the program that brought you solyndra. we'd like to eliminate subsidies that have gone to the oldest and most profitable energy sectors, from the intangible drilling costs to the allowance for last in, first out accounting which actually affects more than the energy sector, but it's just a boondoggle for taxpayers in the u.s. it's not something that's allowed by international accounting stanstandards. in the defense sector, there's a real opportunity for savings b

plan would probably explode the budget deficit. it's not a fiscally responsible plan. >> isn't it true, chris, that he has said he needs to work with congress in terms of going into the specifics of what those loopholes are? >> well, that's true. ultima ultimately, congress, in particular the house ways and means committee, would ultima ultimately write any major tax reform plan. my problem here is tax reform is supposed to be about simplification. i think romney's $17,000 cap would complex complex if i the . that would add a whole bunch of new leans to the 1040, which would make the code more complex. i think we should go to something like the paul ryan house plan he introduced a couple years ago which would eliminate virtually all deductions and credits and use the money to simplify the tax structure down to 10 and 25%. romney needs to be more bold here. his running mate has the bold ideas for tax reform. that's where we should be going here. >> you know, we've had various members of the house ways and means committee on this program in the last six months. almost to the person they

capital spending will pick up once there's clarity with respect to tax policy and deficit spending. and until we see that, there will be a holdback, which there has been in capital spending. after the election those issues should be resolved so we're looking for very robust 2013 market wise. the other piece of this is we really have not had a steady inflow in equity funds since 07 defight the market performance. and that's not true of fixed income, we expect that to actually come to fruition. >> tom: okay. some money to come off out of fixed income maybe into stocks, with sei. >> absolutely. >> tom: let's take a look at your previous picks, right after valentine's day february 15 we saw you, american capital a private equity public trad company up 30% plus. city national up 9%. do you still like these? >> definitely. believe it or not, american capital still trading at three times earnings, despite its appreciation. and it's a perfect play on mid cap companies in the u.s. and certainly monies cheap too. so it's a great way to play the recovery. >> tom: mark, do you own position in

. with deficits, federal government deficits in area of 9% per year and with the country not growing, the gdp not growing, the government debt increases about 9.5% per year. so as of next year, it will be close to about 92%. the year after that, it will be over 100%. there has to be recognition quickly they have underlying problems they need to address. tracy: but if they get their bailout, does that set precedent for the rest of the eurozone? there will certainly be other countries lining up to collect their money as well? >> it's already happened. in fact greece has asked for some support. ireland has asked for support and portugal. the basic underlying problem is that the productivity in the northern part of europe has grown a lot faster than it has in the southern part. when you're be taking about $300 worth of plastic and steel and converting it into $70,000 bmw or mercedes, and you can do that with more machines than you used to before, versus the, waiter working faster or farmer trying to grow faster, it is obvious that the product difficult rates in northern europe are growing faster

the question about how do you keep the code without increasing the deficit. but it's a promising proposal that tax policy exports like because it is achievable. now, if you lump the deductions together and don't fight them one by one and have a cap, that is easier to get done. >> on that 17,000, a, do you think we're going to hear about it tonight? does that include things like charitable deductions, mortgage deductions? how far do you think that goes? >> reporter: yes, it does. >> 17,000 cap across the board. that is meaningful. that would have a huge impact on the real estate market, it would have a huge impact broadly. >> reporter: yes, i believe from what i was reading yesterday, and i haven't gotten a chance to delve into it that $17,000 level was set purposefully because people in the under $200,000 income category generally speaking don't have more than that, right? but it makes it easier to begin taking on deductions as you move up the scale. so i do think it's positive. i would expect him to get asked about it and, you know, if he starts sketching out a little bit how he would re

is not to incur a budget deficit but to achieve a more prosperous expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus. could you have said it any better? >> no, i could not. the other thing kennedy said a rising tide lifts all boats. in other words he was getting away from the class warfare stuff. the class warfare thing makes a lot of sense politically but only politically. i don't think, obama knows this because he was asked this question back in 2008 and he understood sometimes you jack up the tax rate you get less and sometimes you bring it down and you get more but, his goal obviously is not to get more revenue for the government. it is to get more votes for himself by painting the republican as defenders of e rich while he is the champion of the middle class and the poor. david: well in 1980, as you well remember they tried the same thing against ronald reagan. in fact even some republican like george herbert walker bush called it voodoo economics this idea. the american public didn't like it. we like the notion of lower tax rates across the board for everybody. do you think they will b
